This report presents an evaluation of round one of the Union Modernisation Fund (UMF1) projects. UMF1 has supported innovative and qualitatively distinctive projects in unions, which they would not otherwise have had the capacity, skills or resources to deliver within similar time frames. The delivery of projects has resulted in organisational learning. In particular the UMF has strengthened project management experience and skills within unions and provided effective models which unions are adapting and generalising. This evaluation report distinguishes between project outputs and the more substantial and sustainable outcomes that these could lead to in terms of the organisational culture and practice of unions. One of the key challenges identified by the evaluation was the way that modernisation can raise questions about unions' traditional systems and ways of operating.
